2017 Emirates Cup will see Sevilla, Benfica and RB Leipzig face us this summer on July 29 and 30.

For the sake of posterity, this is what I expected last summer, around August:

Rival-wise, I have a weird hunch that Man Utd is still not out of its post-SAF hangover and that the Mourinho experiment will falter. Maybe I'm wrong. Though I dislike Mourinho immensely I recognize his track record. He might do great things. But I just look at this squad and wonder how well it fits within the Mou comfort zone, how the club's fading/aging stars and fringe players will gel ... I think just as commentators are wondering (again) if this is the end of Wenger's hold on top 4, maybe this is also the season when Mourinho finally doesn't deliver a cold-blooded, second season title winning machine. All things have an end, who knows.

I am more worried about what Conte & Pep will do at their clubs. Chelsea had such a horrible season last year but they basically had the same personnel win the league before that, and now they have a few good new players and a disciplined manager. If I had to bet a dollar on what will happen in the PL I think it'll be down to Man City and Chelsea going for the top, with Arsenal and Liverpool likely to round out top 4.

I over-estimated Pep's City a bit (if pressed I think I would have wagered on them winning the league over Chelsea), and I definitely under-estimated Pocchettino's Spurs (lol), but otherwise didn't look too far off the mark.

A lot can happen come Sunday. Arsenal could finish in a CL slot, or not. Either way, I think it's been a disappointing season for the Gunners, and there isn't a ton of optimism for the future. But if we compete in the EL next year, I'm a long way for giving up hopes on a quick return to the CL, at least ... whoever the manager is.

According to FT, there are other bidders monitoring the situation.

It's pointless if Kroenke doesn't want to sell, but I think many will hope something comes of it.

If Arsenal were for sale, pretty sure we'd break record of any club sale ever.

Sad how shit we are on the pitch in contrast to how marketable and reputable we are off it.

We're something like the 7th most valuable club in the world, according to Forbes. So yeah, would take a lot of money to take us over.

Usmanov is offering more than 30% premium to Kroenke. hmm

I wonder if the lack of decisions at the club is related to this.

I think his son might be against the sale. Seems to be very involved recently.

Alisher Usmanov makes $1.3bn bid to take control of Arsenal FC

1.3b for 67 per cent.

As much as I hate Kroenke, I still don't like the idea of Usmanov.

That sleazeball only ever crawls out when things are gloomy, with his promises of riches.

Also, wasn't he rumored to be cashing in on his 29% and putting the money into Everton with his other business partner who bought them over?

The theory I'm seeing is that Usmanov made the bid knowing Kroenke would never sell to him. The interest is around the other potential buyers the article mentioned.

It wouldn't surprise me if he did, Usmanov has wanted to take over for a long time and Kroenke won't even allow him a seat in the board. The dim-witted greedy cock-juggling ballsack.
